Yes.  This is the procedure we worked out for bootstrapping Eclipse builds
for Fedora.  I've actually found some issues with a natively-compiled ecj
being used for the rest of the Eclipse build so we do this:

1. build ecj to bytecode using gcj -C
2. use the resulting ecj to re-build itself (using upstream's methods)
3. use _this_ resulting ecj as the "javac" for the rest of the Eclipse
   build procecudure (again using upstream's methods)

After the upstream build procedure finishes, we natively-compile each jar
with gcj.
